From Agassiz National Wildlife Refuge in Marshall County, Greg Knutsen reported that finally there is starting to be some shorebird habitat, and a few shorebirds are now being seen. Most are GREATER YELLOWLEGS, and LESSER YELLOWLEGS. Some habitat can be seen along the county road at Parker Pool. Other interior pools that are showing some suitable habitat include Mud River Pool, Madsen Pool, and Webster Pool.
